This was most definitely what is called an unsociable hour to be awake. It was close to sunrise and nobody was around. It was rather dead until now, and Mark and I were relaxing browsing a couple of old papers. It was an unusual tranquil moment in Birmingham. Actually it was indeed so peaceful that when the telephone inevitably rang it made me start! The motorist stated: "I've only just completed my evening shift and stupidly poured petrol in my diesel aunt's Fiat Ulysse". We told him to let us know exactly where the car was situated and we set off, ending up in Stechford half an hour later. The fuel was extracted from the engine and he said thanks a lot for showing up so quickly. While we were coming back home we saw two young women at the edge of the street who seemed to have a flat. Obviously we got out to change it, to their delight.

How to find out if I put the wrong fuel in my car?

If you’ve just filled up at a petrol station and the cars starts to act a bit strange you might start to wonder if you accidentally put the wrong fuel in it.

Well, there are a few things to can check that will be able to tell you:

  1. How is the car responding? There are some very common misfuel symptoms which can be a good indicator of wrong fuel:
    • Loss of engine power – can feel like the car has run out of fuel
    • A lot of smoke (more than usual)
    • Engine coughing or starting to splutter
    • Won’t start – or keeps stalling.
  2. Look at your fuel receipt. It will state clearly if you filled up with diesel or unleaded. If you don’t have the receipt, you can often return to the petrol station where you filled up and give them the date and time (and pump) where you refuelled and they will often be able to give you a VA receipt.
  3. Smell it. Diesel and petrol have very distinctly different smells. Anyone familiar with the motor industry should be able to help you with this. Or you could even get another car to park alongside and smell the fuel caps of both, comparing them to determine what the fuel type is.
  4. Call us to come out and assess the car. In the majority of cases we will be able to tell if the car has been misfuelled before beginning work on it. If we discover that the vehicle does not need a fuel drain, you will only be charged a call-out fee.
